YouTube is testing new Community feature for supplementary content

I'll admit, YouTube has added some strange features lately, and at first glance this seemed like yet another useless addition. Starting with a few select channels, a new 'Community' tab will appear on the channel's profile, both on mobile apps and the desktop site.

There are some neat things coming to Chrome in the future, and if you'd like to test them out before everyone else, you're probably already using either the Beta or the Dev version of the Android app. Keep an eye on the former: it's getting some of said features right now. The most interesting addition in version 53 is a new API for quickly checking out on mobile online purchases. It's sort of like the streamlined payment options already offered by PayPal and Visa, but it works with any payment system and it's built into the browser. Check it out in the video below:

YouTube's Up Next Autoplay Feature Appears To Be Rolling Out To Android

YouTube does a lot of cool things, but the consensus is that auto-playing the next video is not one of them. I'm sure some people like that, and they're going to be quite pleased to hear that Google appears to be adding autoplay to the Android app. It's looking like a server-side change, so sit tight and prepare to be pleased or annoyed, depending on your outlook.
